Berkeley record store clerk Nick Brady (Jonathan Scarfe) begins to experience strange visions from an entity he calls VALIS that cause him to uproot his family and move to Los Angeles where he becomes a successful music company executive. With the help of best friend, science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick himself (Shea Whigam) and a mysterious woman named Silvia (Alanis Morissette), Nick finds himself drawn into a dangerous political-mystical conspiracy of cosmic proportions. The story is set in an alternate reality America circa 1985 under the authoritarian control of President Fremont, a Nixon-like clone (Scott Wilson). Written by

Radio Free Albemuth blew me away with its relevance to the political landscape of today. I kept thinking it was all happening in our present day as it very well could be. I appreciated the story and the interesting set-up with the characters the author himself straddles between believing his friend and remaining objective to the situation this set-up also provided an interesting insight into the story. I also enjoyed the setting from Berkeley, CA to LA. The way it was filmed n these locales also provided a feel of being in the present. I highly recommend giving this movie a watch, as it is sure to prompt interesting conversations for what is happening in our world today.
